New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham went before a Congressional committee this week to talk about climate change, boasting of her state’s efforts to reduce air pollution from fossil fuel production.

She used the appearance to urge other states to follow New Mexico’s steps at carbon reductions in the state’s energy sector.

“New Mexico is strongly committed to addressing the climate crisis,” she said before the congresspeople. New Mexico has a long history of oil and gas production. The oil and gas industry is both extremely important to New Mexico’s economy and the state’s largest source of climate pollution.”
